The past couple of weeks have brought on a lot of "firsts" for Brayden. I can't believe how big he is getting and how he is growing and changing every day! He's started standing by holding himself up on something. He started feeding himself finger foods (which I am exceptionally excited about). And, his first tooth is making it's appearance.
Brayden has always seemed to have really strong legs from the beginning. He used to kick the crap out of my tummy before he was even born. He loves to kick and push with his legs and he especially loves jumping in his jumper. So now, instead of sitting on your lap he wants to stand and bounce. Or as we say, do baby squats. Here are a couple of pictures of him standing (he can't pull himself up yet, I stood him there). Isn't his chunk adorable?
The reason that I am really excited about him being able to feed himself finger foods is because a lot of times he gets really impatient when I am preparing his food, so I can hand him a little finger food and he can keep himself happy with that. Also, when we are out shopping if he gets fussy, one of these apple wheels keeps him occupied and satisfied for the time being.
Feeding himself an apple wheel. He loves these!

He's never in the same place in the crib when he wakes up. He's scooting and moving around!
Super baby! He loves this game!
